The collections project is launched for the future Franciscan Museum!

The work of the Franciscan building is progressing quickly and well. The museum team is delighted and at the same time is carrying out a more secret project, less visible to the public but just as important: the collection project. Each step in the preparation for the transfer of works to the Franciscans in early 2020 is timed and carefully anticipated.

How is the collections worksite going?

The work of the collections begins with a legal assessment in order to verify that each work has been approved by the Municipal Council of the City of Deauville which is the owner or the depositary. Then comes the pre-inventory or “proofing”, an important step that allows the assignment or verification of the inventory number of the work to authenticate it more quickly and officially at each stage of the work that awaits them. The marking is then affixed according to conservation standards.

The observation of the state of the table is the most important step. Dozens of control points are reviewed in order to know precisely the state of conservation of the pictorial layer, the support and its frame. Concentration and calm are essential! This step is carried out in parallel with dust removal, if necessary, and the painting campaign, also called digitization. The digitized file will make it possible to keep a trace of the state of the work, to publish it and study it without having to remove it from the reserves in order to limit handling.
Last stage of the work: packaging of the paintings in long-term storage packaging, then their transport and storage in suitable conditions.
This very mysterious site hides treasures that will be revealed to you to the Franciscans ... Can't wait to be there!
